We got up at Cole's usual time on Saturday morning, but we were pleasantly surprised that he didn't wake up at 5 AM with the time change and all. It was more like 7:30 AM each day. I guess being super tired from the day before paid off in some way. Most of us were all on a 2 or 3 hour time difference, so pretty much everyone was getting up earlier too. On Saturday morning, we watched part of the OU / Texas game and had David's family over for breakfast at the house. (Can't believe Texas won BTW!)
We found parking and rode a shuttle to the park entrance. Cole wasn't quite sure what was going on, but he was excited by the Toy Story bus.
This was Cole's first ride - Luigi's Flying Tires! He rode with Tony and my Mom and Dad went together in another tire. I got to watch from the sidelines...no pregnant ladies allowed.
Lightening McQueen! Ka-Chow!
Red, the fire truck!
Gotta love Mater!
After we had lunch, we went to a different area in the park that was set up like an old Boardwalk. I didn't get a picture of it, but there's a big pond and huge Ferris wheel with Mickey on it. Cole and I rode the carousel and all three of us did the Ferris wheel while my Mom and Dad did a ride that Cole couldn't do.
After we met back up with my parents, we got a snack - sundaes at the Ghirardelli store - and watched the Pixar parade. Cole loved seeing characters that he knew and was waving at all of them. It was very cute!
Next, we headed back to Cars Land to do the rest of the rides and to let Cole pick out some souvenirs.
Then, we headed to the Bugs Life area where there were a lot of rides for Cole to do! He loved driving the bumper cars and doing the spinning lady bugs.
We had to take one last look at Radiator Springs with all the lights turned on!
We did one last ride, the Monsters Inc. ride, before we left for the night. Cole had just watched Monsters Inc. when we were on vacation, and loves spotting Mike and Sully when we look at toys, so we knew he'd love that one too. We really had a great time and Cole did great! He never got upset and waited in line so well. We left around 8 PM and did the drive back to San Diego. It went by a lot faster though because there were hardly any cars on the highway, and we stopped for a little dinner/snack at Chick-fil-a on our way back. It was a full day, but so much fun and worth it!
